  • Fiscal power : 5 CV
  • DIN power : 141 ch
  • Maximum speed : 172 km/h
  • Consumption : 6 l/100 km
  • Crit’Air : 1
  • Seen second hand : We saw a Business version from 2019 with 58,000 km on the clock at a price of €19,990.

Unlike its cousin the Kia Stonic, the Hyundai Kona is available in version hybrid. In this version, the Kona combines a thermal engine of 105 ch and an electrical block of 43.5 ch.

  • The good choice : 1.0 T-GDi 120
  • Fuel : Essence
  • Fiscal power : 7 CV
  • DIN power : 120 ch
  • Maximum speed : 181 km/h
  • Consumption : 7.2 l/100 km
  • Crit’Air : 1
  • Seen second hand : We saw a Launch Edition version from 2018 with 66,000 km on the clock at a price of €13,500.

Unlike the Hyundai we just saw, the Stonic is based on a platform of sedan and skips a 4×4 version but also a hybrid and electric version. However, it displays prices much more interesting. The 1.0 engine in its 100 hp version is also shown about et tonic. In terms of finish, the Lunch Edition offers the best price/service compromise. The downside concerns the suspensions as soft as a wooden board.

Verdict : bof !
